1 UP Yours hit its stride in 2007, its penultimate year, as a combination of old faces 
and new faces led to a dramatic increase in the show's popularity. Over the year 
1 UP Yours became one the most downloaded gaming podcast, circulating to 
hundreds of thousands of listeners. Even through periods of transition, 1 UP Yours 
remained salient with compelling discussion and tremendous humor.

The traditional 1 UP Yours segments return as the cast examine the games they've 
been playing and field questions from the listeners. Garnett claims the Resident 
Evil franchise should be canned, and John explains how Heavenly Sword is little

Mitch Gitelman, and news and other amusing moments close out the show.

passionate tone gave him instant appeal among listeners. He led the podcast's 
willingness to openly criticize developers and the industry in a manner not seen 
before in professional gaming podcasts. He left lUPin 2007 to join game 
developer Bungie. 

Shane Bettenhausen 

After writing for various gaming outlets, Shane Bettenhausen began his long term 
as an editor for Electronic Gaming Monthly. His encyclopedic knowledge of video 
games and his apparent intense determination to defend Sony Computer 
Entertainment made him a fan favorite. Fans adored his frankness, and his 
continued denial of his Sony bias. He left 1 UP in 2008, and after several years with 
Ignition Entertainment, joined Sony Computer Entertainment.

Mark MacDonald 

Mark MacDonald joined 1 UP after writing for a variety of other gaming 
publications. He began work on Electronic Gaming Monthly before being moved 
around Ziff Davis, finally managing GameVideos. AJapan aficionado, he handled a 
position as a reliever on 1 UP Yours, filling in when one of the regular cast members 
was unavailable. He left Ziff Davis in 2007, and after a short while was hired by 
Japanese video game localization company 8-4 Ltd., joining former Ziff Davis 
employee John Riccardi.

Thanks for take the time and effort of doing this. Loved the glory years of 
1 UP. Already downloaded both parts, looking forward to listening to them. 


JoeB April 12, 2011 at 3:51 PM 

You guys are amazing! I can only imagine the time you guys put into this. 
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 


danielmeier April 12, 201 1 at 3:55 PM 

No to be an a-hole or anything. But adding some cover art and info to the 
ID3 Tags like you did for the first one, would make this even better. 


Bobb-o April 1 2, 201 1 at 6:01 PM 
Man, what an a-hole! 


Daniel April 12, 2011 at 6:09 PM 

Pretty sure that's Larry Hryb (Major Nelson)'s picture in the second spot on 
the bottom row of pictures -- not Mitch Gitelman as the legend suggests. 


Saad Khalid April 1 2, 201 1 at 8:41 PM 

When the time comes, and it inevitably will, GFW is going to need several 
instalments. That show was just too damn good. 


Anonymous April 1 2, 201 1 at 1 0:00 PM 
Thank you so much. 


GodForHire April 13,2011 at12:12AM 

This is so great. I hope you do a GFW recap soon!

Thank you all for the feedback. Just quickly addressing a few points: 


We forgot to tag the MP3 files, but you can find the cover above. Our 
apologies for that and any inconvenience caused. 

With regards to the requests for GFW Radio recaps, we do have plans to

cover that show. The sudden increase in demand over the past few days 
will probably see a release sooner rather than later. In the mean time, 
keep checking the release calender on our blog for more information. 

Please keep the feedback coming, and if you have suggestions regarding 
other shows you'd like us to cover, you can reach us on Twitter or through 
our email (see the 'Contact' link on the sidebar). 

Thanks for listening.

lUp Yours and GFW. 

I miss listening to those guys. 

Anonymous August 7, 201 1 at 2:23 PM 

I have to agree with Daniel, the guy pictured in row d, column 2 looks like 
Larry Hyrb (Major Nelson). It is so sad that I know that.
